Course description

This course is for engineers or graduates who want to become technical specialists or managers in industrial and manufacturing companies.

It increases your career potential by improving your
• knowledge and experience of engineering
• technical and problem solving skills
• management skills
• ability to take on greater responsibility

This course helps you understand concepts and theories behind developing, manufacturing and managing engineering products and systems. You learn to explore and apply developments in engineering and management academic thinking and industrial practice.

You study
• two management modules
• two technical modules
• four optional modules

There is a wide range of optional modules including • lean operations and six sigma • advanced manufacturing technology • applicable artificial intelligence • computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture • advanced computer system architecture • network applications.

The international product development module involves working in multidisciplinary teams to develop a new product in a global market. This allows you to develop much sought after advanced technical and business skills and improves your career prospects in engineering industry, and public service. This project also develops your particular interest in a supported environment.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), on behalf of the Engineering Council, for the purposes of partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer; graduates who have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the further learning requirement for CEng accreditation.

This course is also accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.

This programme is CEng accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and fulfils the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer when presented with an CEng accredited Bachelors programme.

Entry requirements

2017 entry requirements

UK students

Normally one from

• an honours degree (2.2 or above) in a science or engineering subject

• suitable professional qualifications in an engineering field

• a degree in any discipline plus at least one year of relevant experience

• a diploma in a technological area plus at least three years of relevant experience

You may also be able to claim credit points which can reduce the amount of time it takes to complete your qualification at Sheffield Hallam.

Overseas students

If English is not your first language you typically need an IELTS 6.0 score with a minimum of 6.0 in writing and 5.5 in all other skills or equivalent. If your English language skill is currently below IELTS 6.0 we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English score.
